Dubai is a highly developed emirate, where they not only declare a rapid increase in the luxury levels for their residents, but also a civilized attitude towards their environment. Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary is an example of such.
This flamingo "island" shows tourists how important it is in the modern world to give a chance to rare birds and animals to survive in a construction boom. Dubai recreated a picturesque mangrove island where beautiful and graceful flamingos have a chance to nestle.
Bordering Dubai Creek, this Wildlife Sanctuary is home to more than 200 species of fauna and 40 species of flora. Founded in 1985, this Sanctuary provides a home to a large number of rare birds, crustaceans, fish and mammals however, the pink flamingos steal the show when it comes to the opinions of observers.
This government of the United Arab Emirates does everything necessary in order to preserve and increase the population of the pink flamingos. In the framework of the care of these rare birds, several million palm trees were planted and forests were created from local trees.
The journey to these amazing pink creatures impresses even the most inveterate skeptics. A day trip to this magical place is definitely a recommendation whether you're a UAE citizen or a tourist. The cinematic view of these wildlife creatures moving in the shadows of the setting sun is something you can't really have everyday.
A place hidden from the mains roads, this flamingo spot is a beautiful spot for photographers and nature lovers.
In order to capture the true essence of this place, you need to be prepared. Binoculars are a good idea to have on your trip to the Sanctuary in order to view the birds and animals in the distance. Also, don't forget sunscreen if you plan on visiting the flamingos during the summer. Needless to say that due to the fact that there are no shops nearby, a smart decision would be to bring your own snacks and water.
So, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and head to the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary and enjoy the amazing experience it provides.
